I keep getting asked about skin care tips, especially for glowing skin, brighter skin and even….gasp….lighter skin. As we all know, I am not a dermatologist so my knowledge of these things are limited. However, I am fair complexioned and when you are fair complexioned and live in the tropics, it is doubly essential to take extra care of your skin. Dark complexioned as well, of course.
So I have compiled a few tips to getting clearer skin. Naturally, topical applications can only do so much. To get good results one needs to have a good diet, drink lots of water and stay out of the sun (after 10p.m, there is no more Vitamin D to be had). Exercising is also quite beneficial as the sweat that ensues helps to flush pores.
Here are my tips. The natural ingredients are easy to find in any market/shop around you. You can use limes or lemons. I used limes as lemons can be challenging to find in Nigeria. I have deliberately left to your discretion your choice of moisturizer and sunscreen. Sunscreen is a must by the way, not just because using limes will leave skin photosensitive but also because I consider it good practice.
Try this for at least a month. I hope that you can benefit one way or another but please do not expect any miracles. Your spots will not disappear, for example. Let me know how it goes.
